The Group of 5+
What is the Group of 5+ ?
Group of 5+ is a collective of five professional independent English-language theatre companies seeking to share a creative and administrative space to establish a sustainable arts ecosystem. The Group of 5+ aims provide its members with a permanent and viable infrastructure-a physical space-where members can share resources, create and build community.
Who is in the Group of 5+ ?
The five dynamic theatre companies in the Group of 5+ are:
- Imago Theatre;
- Dulcinée Langfelder & Cie;
- Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal;
- Geordie Productions;
- Talisman Theatre.
What guides the Group of 5+ ?
We believe a shared space and the resulting collective ecosystem will expand the boundaries of theatrical creation.
The vision for Group of 5+ is to sustain the development and presence of professional English-language theatre in the Québec and Montreal arts landscape. The collective would galvanize exchange and the sharing of resources for its members- both past and present-with an aim to strengthen the English-language minority community and expand upon the scope, inclusivity and vibrancy of Québecois theatre.
The Group of 5+ is guided by the following five principles:
- BEING LEADERS in the community;
- BUILDING a collective infrastructure;
- SECURING a foundation for English-language theatre in Montréal;
- PROMOTING exchange and cooperation between artists;
- EXPERIMENTING with new technologies.
